7 Reasons Why You Should be Drinking More Water

I know that I am guilty of not drinking enough water on a daily basis. Since the kids went back to school last week, I have been trying to drink more water and wanted to challenge you to fill your glass with water instead of soda, milk, juice, or tea. According to WebMd, here are some great reasons why drinking more water is good for your health.

  • Your body is made up of water and it is important that you drink enough water on a daily basis to keep your body functioning properly.
  • Help maintain your body fluids that aid in digestion, circulation, saliva creation, transports nutrients, and helps maintain your body temperature.
  • If you want to lose weight, try drinking a glass of water before each meal. It will help you feel full and help reduce your calorie intake. Plus, if you are sipping on water it keep you from drinking high calorie substitutes.
  • Water helps your muscles work properly and reduces muscle fatigue.
  • Water keeps your skin looking good.
  • It helps remove toxins from your body and helps the kidneys function properly.
  • If you are constipated, try upping your water intake to help keep things moving properly.

    I agree with the third reason. I’ve been doing that for quite some time now, and it works wonders. 🙂

    Have you ever been totally dehydrated? I have and it is really not pleasant! It has caused all kinds of side effects. I drink liquids (ice tea, water, etc) all day long now. Some days over 164 ounces-it depends on how hot it is out there!

      Dehydration is the worst, especially, if it happens when your pregnant.

    Water is one of the most important things for anyone to survive. Drinking safe water is obviously equally important. Thanks for sharing so much info about water and reason of drinking more water.

      Welcome back, I am glad you enjoy my blog.

      I need to make the switch to water. I am on a bunch of meds and they supposedly make me gain weight.

    I am trying to drink a lot more water, I tend to drink sugary things instead and should change that to water.

    I remember the water rule: take your weight in pounds, cto ounces like: 150 pounds is 150 ounces, divide in half, then that is the amount of ounces you should be drinking in water: so, 75 ounces of water for me! http://makeupuniversity.blogspot.com/2014/09/old-spaghetti-factory-gaslamp-district.html
